to find one another and to press, to put pressure on mayors and regional ministers to commit themselves to invest in bicycle policies. so those towns can learn from one another. as i told you, brussels, i have found several similarities with the two towns i have been getting to know now yesterday and today. we have about one million inhabitants. brussels is 10 to 10 miles on distance and i agree with what has been told here that that is in favor of promoting cycling because the distances are never too long, although we also have a difference of height. i mean, like amsterdam is plat as a pancake we would say. brussels does have some, well, ups and downs. an important issue politically is that we have -- we are, in fact, giving big gross national product to the country, 20%, although we're only 10% of the population, but yet most workforce is coming from abroad, from flounders, from outs. so they are coming in at 9:00 in the morning and the workers are again leaving to the north or the south of the country in the evening and we have ourselves a population with also considerable amount of

a recovery path, supported in part by needs created by restoration projects in the disaster-hit region. additional monetary policy easing will also help the economy to grow. >> meanwhile, a chief analyst is a little more cautious. he says he's not sure if the decline will continue. he warns that the yen could start strengthening again if the u.s. economy recovery loses steam or if japan's efforts to pull itself out of deflation fail. >>> asia plays an increasing my important role in the global economy but some question whether the region can sustain its growth. starting today we'll be bringing you a series of interviews with business and financial leaders. the head of the asian development bank gave us an interview. >> reporter: while the global economic outlook remains uncertain, asian region remains a bright spot. >> to some extent compared with the u.s. and europe and also compared with latin america and africa. asia will be the fastest growing economy in the world. >> reporter: in contrast, the japanese economy is showing signs of weakness. the new prime minister sinko abe says he
of you. michael, we will start with you. we know government is the regional -- at the regional, state, and local level can help or hinder startup companies. what would you like to see from the governments here in the valley, sacramento, or in d.c., that would strengthen the innovation economy? >> i could go on about immigration and corporate tax policy reform, but i am a researcher, so i will not. >> and we have seven minutes. >> mayor lee said it perfectly. the fundamental thing that companies are looking for is to be engaged in the process. we use a term in computing called agile. we look for more ability and the possibility to work with us, iterate in the process, rather than what we often see as we call the waterfall, take-it-or- leave-it. flexibility and agility is what is most important. >> mayor lee? >> i have always thought of our city as being the gateway to the rest of the world. i have often talked, with companies, i want to be with you when you turn the corner. we want to be the city that treats international markets for your products. i do not know if you know this but we

that the united states had the highest economic and security interests in the asia pacific region. not in europe as has been for 100 years prior to that, than the asia pacific region. secondly, that we would maintain freedom of access throughout that region. in particular, we would maintain the sea lanes in that area, whatever the challenge might be. even as we reduce our defense budget, therefore we must maintain and would maintain a powerful navy, and that that navy would be charged with maintaining the freedom of those sea lanes. we had, of course, to be concerned as to whether there would be a challenge for that. we observed that the rise and shine has more energy needs for more energy than they can produce themselves, and to maintain the economic growth which they believe is essential. we observed that the south china sea is a potential source of energy supplies for china and that there is a contention among the nations in that region as to where the ownership and rights of access are to the south china sea. and this is conceivable that china might seek to reestablish its claim there by mil
the capital region. this is "washington business report" with abc7 national correspondent rebecca cooper. >> thanks for jojoining us for a look at busess anand finance the washington r region. we started the week with the president's swearing in, but he was not given mucuch time for our honeymoon. the debtbt ceili was postponed until may but other deadlines are them in march. for all ththe kidsds want t deep c cuts in social prorograms, while democrats insist -- republicans wanteeper cuts s in social prrams while demrats i insist they must be coupled with tax increases. as yogi berra would say, deja all over again. first, it is time for the annual book of lists.

regime, that the whole region would take notice. i think people around that region would begin to question where the future was going. i think pakistan would have serious challenges to its own ability to maintain stability. because if you think about it, they've got a pakistani taliban insurgency which is very dangerous, an afghan taliban run afghanistan would be a staging area to support that. so i think pakistan's stability would at least be challenged. >> i want to ask you about intelligence gathering and the treatment of prisoners, part of the legacy of this war on terror. a piece in the "los angeles times" i read this week and it was interesting because she said, look, we have to look at the totality of the fight to get bin laden. and there was incredible work done behind the scenes, incredible work done by intelligence officers in this country. and, yes, moral lines were crossed. but that's all part of the mix in terms of achieving the result. to the extent that enhanced interrogation techniques even what some people may consider torture was used in the successful hunt fo
in the relationship to jobs, housing. i think this is if you will a more contemporary frame. at the regional level we have been quite active. the conversation of how to do "smart growth" is still right, not a recipe off the shelf. doing also equitable transportation development is also a puzzle. this body continues to be a leader in helping to figure out that puzzle without necessarily having all the answers. we continue to be ahead of the curve; this bodies an excellent place, san francisco is an excellent laboratory; from the affordable housing standpoint we look forward to working with you all and the new chair. >> thank you. commissioner cohen? >> good morning everyone. i want to make a couple of comments. i represent many of the southeast neighborhoods. i have an acute in detailed understanding of the shortcomings of the cities transportation for structure. i am a member of the regional board governs caltrain. in determining the future of the regions transportation agencies, i want to talk about the imperative things that the next chair will have the sole responsibility of seeing - of be
of the regional board governs caltrain. in determining the future of the regions transportation agencies, i want to talk about the imperative things that the next chair will have the sole responsibility of seeing - of being a steward to get it done recognizing the inequities that have existed in our transportation expenditures. i want to make sure our need is lined -- our resources i lined up where our needs are. working with ntc and bart, to make sure that we are planning on the modernization of the regional transit lines and looking for smart ways to expand transportation in our city. it is important to leverage the local sales tax dollars to complement and support of the city funded infrastructure investment coming from voter approved initiatives such as the street bond that we all i think worked on. working in tandem with mta to deliver pedestrian safety, traffic calming and other improvements faster and more efficiently and very fair and process to select our executive director. i believe that commissioner avalos will be able to handily take the wheel and help us usher and addresses k
-aircraft missiles from syria into lebanon. >> we will speak to an expert on the region later. first, this report. >> the israeli government has not issued any statement, but national papers are full of the news. u.s. officials say the raid targeted a weapons convoy headed for members of hezbollah, an ally of the syrian president. but the syrian government denied the existence of the vehicles, saying the israeli planes bombed a research center near damascus. russia says the facts are not yet clear but adds that any air strike would be completely unacceptable. >> we are analyzing the information as we receive it. if the allegations are confirmed, then it is our position this is a serious breach of the united nations charter. this would be an unacceptable action against a sovereign government. >> the syrian media say two people were killed when israeli jets bombed the research center near damascus and five more injured. israel has not commented on the allegations, but the israeli government had warned syria this week that it would not accept any syrian weapons falling into the hands of hezbollah. i
are controlled by chÁvez. they want an election in october from a regional elections in december. chÁvez has enormous compassion, generates sympathy among the venezuelan people. the government has the upper hand. as we just heard, henrique capriles is beginning to come out and make statements because i think people are getting ready for an election. i think the government probably has the edge, but that is the situation we are in. >> miguel tinker salas, you have questioned whether there is a constitutional crisis as much as the press reporting has made out, or whether this is really more a strategy of the opposition and external opponents of the chÁvez government. could you talk about that? >> sure. if this was any other country, we would not be having this conversation. those constitutions are very similar to the venezuelan constitution, which clearly states in article 231 a president cannot be inaugurated a for the national assembly on january 10, he or she can be sworn in and a subsequent time before the supreme court. the issue is that a constitutional crisis. although i think the oppo
region opposed u.s. military operation. this is not a few that slightly held. in fact, passionately and intensely help but here's one measure of why. when only one in 10 people, flat top, flat top, one and 10 full-time residents, in tribal areas think that suicide attacks are ever justified against pakistani military forces, almost six in 10 believe these attacks are justified against the united states military. much of the antipathy towards the united states stems from one cause and one cause really only. and that against cia director jon strikes on militants living in the area. more than three quarters of fatah residents oppose these strikes. however, this opposition to american military policy does not mean that the people of fatah embrace the taliban or al qaeda. in fact, it's quite the opposite. fewer than 10% of the people in the area supported the presence of al qaeda and less than 20% supported the pakistani taliban. and here's a telling finding asked this question. it was peterburg as i decide to give them credit for. on previous polls we have conducted, not with new americ
a shift in the regional balance of power. we arguing about these two are inextricably linked. the successes that the islamic republic is driving, that they are linked and it is in fact americans dysfunctional policy towards the islamic republic of iran, which is part of our decline in the middle east. we also argue will take strategic realignment of the united states that the islamic republic of iran to enable america's strategic recovery in the middle east. we unpack these arguments by examining the bases for u.s. dominance in the middle east, something increasingly driven since the end of the cold war by americans in a capability to project enormous amounts of conventional military force in the middle east. no one else can project this kind of military force in the middle east today or for years to come. this has given the united states extraordinary economic and political influence in the middle east and in fact reinforced are military and economic dominance and other key parts of the world. but our failures in afghanistan and iraq in particular have underscored especially
to the members of the region if they agree to a bifurcation they would take up the 27 billion it so that some of their members could look decent and vote for assistance to people in need of public assistance to say in natural disaster assistance and the others that didn't want to go to the 33, well, they just need a fewer number of republicans and the democrats would carry the day for them. i don't think that they should take the deal. they thought they should, and here we are with $9 billion today. hopefully that will pass. so i would hope that whatever minor concerns they have about this, that or the other thing in the bill, the major initiative of being there for the american people and time of natural disaster as we have been with katrina, the midwest, california, all of these places that we should be there for them. in fact this is the largest delay on any natural disaster assistance since last year. hurricane irene affected a large part of the northeast as well. the same region although broader swaths of the east coast of the country. i hope that the end of the day enough republicans wo
. the friend said they are targeting rebels with links to al qaeda, but the region has a mixture of ethnic groups and secularists. they declared independence in last year -- last year. many have fled from the capital, fearful of revenge attacks. he decided to stay and help promote his people's culture. he said they want peace and reject a strict islamic laws imposed by some. >> you can say that maybe it is a fringe group of rebels, but most tuaregs are not part of this rebellion. >> the rebels say they are open to negotiations but have not ruled out attempts to capture the city. the french join the conflict after a plea from the malian government. it was supposed to be a short deployment but has turned into a bloody campaign. >> while france has honored a helicopter pilot killed during the first day of its intervention in mali, he was cleared -- he was killed by rebel fire. french president francois holland says he stands by his decision to send troops into the country. >> it had not taken this decision on friday morning, where would mali be now? given their intention to go and seek a posi

spread to regional countries, something which is rejected by the whole of the international communities. so no party is left with different options. there's only one option for everybody. it's becoming very clear, particularly today after the defiant turn of assad that if something is not done immediately in the weeks to come, we just will be bracing ourselves in a catastrophic situation in syria. >> hashim, which brings me to my last question. perhaps this is an obvious one to ask but opposition listening to the speech, i'm guessing the only way forward is more violence? >> well, they were not really in the beginning pinning high hopes on whatever assad would say, particularly his vision for the future of syria. they were expecting him to agree to raise the same oppositions about him being in power and opposition has never been genuine and it's been manipulated. but when he was lashing out today at the opposition, describing them as a bunch of murders, used by the western neighboring countries to destabilize and undermine the sovereignty of syria, they said there's no way we will talk

region during the friday evening rush hour. so we are concerned that maybe there will be a little bit of slippery going for some of you. let me show you where the system is now. it's not a huge storm that comes up the east coast. it's a fast moving system centered over the dakotas, the snow toward minneapolis streaking toward chicago. it's making its way toward d.c. it's going to be real fast. i'm thinking we'll only see about three to six hours worth of snow, but round 2 will come in the afternoon, no problems for the morning rush hour, although boy, is it cold. we'll show you temperatures in a moment. this will develop friday afternoon probably after 1:00 or 2:00 in the afternoon. it will be very fine dry snow, the kind of fairy dust we had last night, glut could be slick spots as this comes -- but there could be slick spots as this comes down during rush hour. maybe another small accumulation of very dry fluffy snow, but with these temperatures as cold as they are we have to expect this will stick to all untreated surfaces. right now no winter weather advisories. there are winter s
is needed is working more closely to reintegrate the afghanistan into the regional economy. this includes enhancing and building more power grids. pakistan needs power. it needs access to energy. afghanistan needs power. if you create interdependency between these countries, especially countries that are not on friendly terms with each other, which will enhance the chances of stability to allot more more expensive projects could be pipelines and others, but at least the national grid, railroads. fortunately, pakistan is extending its railroad into kandahar. the railroad from central asia will connect now across afghanistan, north and south. we can really rebuild afghanistan as a crossroad or roundabout of trade. that is key. internally, improving access to capital in afghanistan by providing political incentives, in terms of political assurance, making more credit available for investment by international companies in afghanistan, allowing afghan companies to have access to easier credit -- these are the key issues that could help afghanistan on the economic front. more importantly, a cle
